With a constant push towards lighter, stronger and more fuel efficient vehicles, the use of composite materials is a proven way to achieve this goal. Composite material manufacturing is widely used in large scale manufacturing, but is a challenge for small scale operations, such as MT Tech. The idea is to construct a one piece composite seat for the MT Tech Baja team that meets the requirements of the Baja SAE Collegiate Design Series.
